The Florentine sculptor Donatello (c. 1386 - 1466) is one of the great pioneers of the Italian Renaissance. His contemporaries already recognized his outstanding importance, and clients from all over Italy - including Prato, Siena, Padua, Rome and Naples - sought his works.
Donatello was a versatile innovator who - always open to technical and artistic developments - experimented tirelessly with materials and aesthetic expression. These include the consistent use of central perspective, the rediscovery of terracotta, his pioneering achievements in the field of bas-relief such as the bronze equestrian monument, and the exploration of the most diverse human emotions in representation.
